Celtic rock fusion band from Ireland. Formed in 1981 when Dónal Lunny and Christy Moore of Planxty, wanted to explore the possibilities of linking contemporary music to Irish traditional music. Went through many changes in personnel and recorded four critically acclaimed albums. The group ceased regular touring/recording in 1984 making only the occasional live appearance over the years. The band reformed in 2007, and was active through 2009 before once again moving to "intermittent" status.
